Baggie of drugs recovered from pond after pursuit of suspect in Danbury

A baggie of drugs has been recovered from a pond in Danbury after a drug trafficking suspect reportedly threw the narcotics into the water while fleeing police.  Danbury Police detectives investigating the sale of cocaine in the city obtained search warrants for 34-year old George Kalu and his Cleveland Street apartment.  Police tried to stop the man as he walked along West Wooster Street yesterday afternoon, but he fled on foot.  During the pursuit, Kalu allegedly threw a bag containing cocaine into a nearby pond.  A dive team member retrieved the drugs, and Kalu was apprehended.  Police found "numerous" glassine bags containing fentanyl, and from his apartment seized packaging materials and an electronic scale. Kalu was charged with tampering with evidence, interfering with the duties of a police officer, and two counts each of possession of a controlled substance and possession of narcotics with intent to sell.  He was held on 150-thousand dollars bond.
